Evaluation of adiabatic runaway reaction and vent sizing for emergency relief from DSC
- 213 Downloads
Analytical equations related adiabatic runaway reactions to programmed scanning thermal curves from differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were proposed. Thermal or pressure hazards can be assessed from the adiabatic trajectories expressed in the analytical equations. These industrially energetic materials include polymerizable monomers, unstable organic peroxides and nitro-compounds. Various emergency relief behaviors, such as tempered vapor, gassy, and hybrid were re-evaluated for calculating vent sizing or mass flow rates from DSC thermal curves and the related physical properties.
